Tribute to Vern

Nice gesture for Vern Ruhle. I never heard of the Idol guy but I'm sure of lot of you have. From the Reds:

VERN RUHLE: In ceremonies prior to tonight's game against the Astros, the Reds will unveil a jersey above the home bullpen in memory of former pitching coach Vern Ruhle, who died January 20 of complications from a donor stem cell transplant for the treatment of multiple myeloma...the jersey will be unveiled at approximately 6:55 p.m....the club's Major League pitching coach in 2005, Ruhle missed the '06 season while receiving treatments for cancer...this season he had been assigned to work as the organization's pitching rehabilitation coordinator at its minor league complex in Sarasota...he is survived by his wife Sue, daughter Rebecca and son Kenny.

AMERICAN IDOL: Visiting Great American Ball Park tonight is Elliott Yamin, one of the stars of last year's American Idol television show...he will watch Reds batting practice from the field and during the seventh-inning stretch will sing Take Me Out To The Ballgame from the Cincinnati Bell Riverboat Deck...Yamin is in town for an appearance tomorrow morning on Whoopi Goldberg's morning drive show, which will be broadcast live from the MIX 94.1 studios...Yamin's self-titled debut album reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in its first week of sales.
